its Medusa head to the foreground

through fears what it does not
know . . . So these people hurling
their foul and hate-filled language
at the American public seek to hide
and find protection by accusing
various political societies as
"murderers of Christians".
It is unfortunate when a wall of
hatred and lies has become so
thick it is impervious to any intel-
lectual or cultural stimulation.
I think this group owes an
apology to the audience who wit-
nessed this shameful display of
"American Patriotism". And
certainly an apology should be
forthcoming from the city of De-
troit for the pompous pageant of
"Christian" hatred presented be-
